and 72% declared that women sports cannot‌ play‌ a significant role in strengthening customer relations.76‌%Spread‌ media‌ coverage is not reachable.


The results‌ show‌ women sports increases sales of company very little. This result is inconsistent with‌ Sparks‌ and Westgate (2002) results. This‌ inconsistency‌ between Canadian‌ and‌ Iranian‌ sponsors seems to be the result‌ of‌ media coverage of games, commercial contracts, sports Ads, presence of the audience‌ and‌ fans, and world competitions. Iranian women‌ don’t have these. Also‌ results‌ show women sports changed people‌’s attitude‌ towards the company less than average. So the results of this survey are‌ inconsistent‌ with Benveniste and Pigot (1988‌). They‌ showed‌ continuing sponsorship has‌ a more‌ positive effect on people‌ and‌ changes people’s attitude towards the company. It’s obvious that it takes sponsorship a long time‌ to‌ be valid. The reason of this‌ inconsistency‌ can be‌ the‌ lack‌ of continuing investing in‌ women sports. Most of companies’ investments are short term.
